As with most major cities, learning to drive in Stoke’s heavy traffic will really put you through your paces!
Don’t worry though, there are plenty of quiet areas that are perfect for any learner just starting out, and your Midrive instructor will be sure to show you the ropes. If you’re looking for a recommendation, we’d suggest heading to the Middleport area. There are plenty of wide, quiet streets, and if it’s that three-point turn you’re hoping to drill, Prospect Street is our top choice - it’s a dead end, so there won’t be much risk of traffic here!
When you get a bit more familiar with life on the road, there are plenty of trickier areas to challenge yourself on. Busy roads such as Victoria Road (Fenton) and the A500 will be sure to keep you on your toes. And so will multi-lane roundabouts like the Smallthorne roundabouts and tricky junctions like Lime Kiln and Cobridge. Driving around these areas of Stoke-on-Trent will be good training for when you get that all-important driving licence!
Whether you’re after manual or automatic lessons in Stoke-on-Trent, we’ve got you covered.
There are pros and cons for both types of transmission, so make sure that you pick the option that’s right for you. A manual licence will allow you to drive both manual and automatic cars, whereas an automatic licence will only allow you to drive automatics.
Automatics tend to be easier to control in heavy traffic since they don’t need the driver to constantly press on the clutch and change gears every time they stop. So this transmission might be right up your street if you’re going to be driving around Stoke city centre on a regular basis! Manual cars tend to be better suited to long journeys along country roads or motorways.
Your Midrive instructor will introduce you to the routes that could come up in a test from your local driving test centre. Make sure that you get plenty of practice in the areas surrounding your test centre so that you’re feeling confident and prepared by the time the big day rolls around! Your closest test centre is:
